Spanish Talavera Potter Inkwell, Juan Gomez

Juan Gomez de Luna is recorded as making pottery in Talavera Spain from 1795 to 1805. This inkwell displays his name as well as that of Bernardo Toston. We don’t know anything about Toston but the inkwell also has a small portrait sketch between the two names.

Talavera potter is similar to the better known Dutch Delft, though often less refined.
